As you may have heard, we’re a little snowed in here in the DC metro area. Though winter storm Jonas has made it’s way out of here, we’re now dealing with serious dig out. Feeling chilled by the cold and wetness, I decided it was time to make chai—one of my favorite drinks.
Chai is a type of Indian tea made by boiling water, milk , sugar and spices together .It has been popularized here in the west and can be found at any good coffee shop. However, I find the syrups used at most of these establishments to be too sugary and overpowering. One sip of homemade chai and you’ll never go back!
What I love most about making my own chai is that I can combine the spices to make each cup unique to my particular needs whether it is to bring balance, ignite agni (digestive fire), or simply enjoying some of my favorite spices. Below is a simple to follow recipe, however I recommend you play with the spices to see what works best for you.
